The Experience

We are a beautiful bed and breakfast right by the turquoise lagoon of Bacalar, located in the southern region of Quintana Roo in the deep mayan zone of Mexico. We have just started a healthy food restaurant where we offer organic and vegan/vegetarian menus to our guests and clients. We have yoga class and have kayaks for rent and enjoyment.
